La Cantine du Faubourg: Modern Paris on your plate
La Cantine du Faubourg opened its doors more than a decade ago, doing its “little turn on the catwalk” of Paris’ top fashion avenue, at n°105 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. What was previously a site for a bank quickly bloomed into one of the City of Lights’ most coveted addresses for a hip lunch, after-work drinks, dining and entertainment.
Paris boasts a strong heritage of rustic bistrots and traditional brasseries. But as a capital city, it also drums an international beat, with influences from around the world. Today’s Parisians are far from your stereotypical “baguette-and-brie” fanatics. Today’s Parisians are well-travelled foodistas, very much like the connoisseurs of Dubai, with whom we share a spoonful of our “melting pot” cuisine!
There are many reasons for our success. First and foremost, la Cantine du Faubourg’s creators, Pierre Pirajean and Helena Paraboschi are artists and sculptors: “La Cantine du Faubourg is more than a restaurant, it’s an artistic rendez-vous, a lifestyle statement. The concept relies on five key principles: sound, music, image, art and food. A hybrid gateway for celebrities and beautiful people from around the world, in search of their private playground and a multi-sensory experience.
Make your grand entrance, in between twin skyscrapers. The stage is set at Jumeirah Emirates Towers: a garden terrace overlooking DIFC’s top landmarks, a natural, minimalistic bar, pergola dining room and a lounge-restaurant.
White curtains for video screenings, an array of lighting that colors our world according to your mood, live music to complete the atmosphere… And picture this : La Cantine du Faubourg is an up-beat rendez-vous with the arts. Eat with your eyes, feed your soul and watch us showcase today’s most audacious photographers, painters, sculptors, musicians and singers… Get ready for your next art exhibition!
Here is an elegant restaurant where you will meet familiar faces, within a dynamic urban context. There is a place for everyone at La Cantine du Faubourg: those who prefer a “behind-the-curtain” dinner at the “Salon Privé”; those who would rather relax in a private booth; those who stay perched on tall bar stools…
Everything is always moving, changing on the spur of the moment, for a clientele of decision makers and trend setters.
Day and night, La Cantine du Faubourg delivers a completely unique experience for those who would mingle in the lounge.
